Old Storm Damage from Katrina
Dee- was talking about a tree in her yard having to come down before it fell on the house. Thought ya'll might like to see the pictures of our house after Katrina. This is the pine tree that came for a visit. :)
The first picture is our backyard. It would have been a lot worse but about two years ago we had 23 pine trees cut down.
The area where the tree came in was my china cabinet. So I lost all the family antiques and some of my good china. It hurt at first- but if God did not think I needed it then i guess my children don't either. But I did shed a few tears. :(
My husband put up a plywood wall and we lived like that until we took the house down. If i could not find something the answer became---Guess it's behind the wall. :)
The last picture is of the front yard or part of it. We lost an oak tree that was very old and beautiful. But it was going to have to come down when we built -so God just took it down early.
Dee if we were close by my DH's guys would take it down for you for free. They spent a good deal of time after the storm taking care of those things. They just recently took a big pine down that was just behind our trailer. It had pine beetles and was dead. Lots of the trees in the area got them after the storm. They do a lot of damage.
Notice the shot from behind---it is not so big now! Ha! Ha!
